It’s been almost 5 years since Amy Winehouse released her last album “Back to Black,” and immediately after her passing this weekend the album has jumped to the #1 spot on itunes.
Imagine what would happen if her unreleased material for what would have been a third album were released? Sources said she’d been working on new songs for the past two years and although most of the music was at demo stage there was “a lot of material.”
A year and a half after Michael Jackson passed away, a collection of material that Michael had been working on before he died was released as an album titled “Michael.”
It’s known that Winehouse had been collaborating with producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson these past two years. Also, Winehouse had cancelled her European tour where she might have shared this new music. Her goddaughter who heard the LP before Winehouse death said, “I have heard it, and it’s very good! I hear she’s touring a few places in Europe soon, too, but I don’t know where. Obviously I’m saying no more!”
Amy’s publicist has said, “There is no information on any new music at this time.”
Whether or not she releases an album posthumously, it’s up to her parents who now have the rights to all her unreleased music.
